    About " Henning Haslund "

  • Henning Haslund

    Though born in Denmark, Henning Haslund had the soul of a Mongol nomad The foot loose young man originally journeyed to Outer Mongolia in 1923, ostensibly to help run an experimental agricultural project Yet it didn t take long for the call of adventure to out sing the tune of the peasant s plow Henning, who was an excellent horseman, had already explored far afield by the time the farm failed He was quickly offered suitable employment by the Swedish ex patriot, Hertog Larsen, who was known as the Duke of Mongolia Larsen introduced young Henning to Sweden s most celebrated Central Asian explorer, Sven Hedin In the company of these two living legends, Henning spent several years exploring the Gobi desert and learning the basics of scientific research By 1930 Henning had decided to branch out on his own These plans were delayed when he was badly wounded in an avalanche and had to return to Europe for surgery Following his recovery, Henning lectured in Denmark and Sweden, then announced that he was returning to Mongolia with state of the art recording equipment to record the music and oral legends of Inner Asia The lacquer discs which Henning ultimately produced now form the crown jewels of a prized ethnic collection housed at the National Museum in Copenhagen Despite a life full of adventure, war and danger, Henning found himself in Afghanistan in 1947, bound as always for another adventure Yet the camel bells of the ultimate caravan were calling the Danish rover He died as he lived, far afield Henning Haslund lies buried in Kabul, close to the grave of that other Central Asian wanderer, Sir Auriel Stein.

  • Henning Haslund is a wonderful narrator of life in the early 1900's in Central Asia. This first book is about his participation in the Danish expedition to explore the potential of diary and other kinds of farming in Mongolia. Also published in hardcover by Trubner & Co June 2005. This book is also called Mongolian Adventure, published in softcover by The Long Riders Guild Press in 2005.


  • This is by Henning Haslund, was originally written in Danish and published by Asiatiske Strejftog in Denmark in 1946. The English version, published was first published by Routledge & Kegan Paul, in London in 1949. This book has very nice woodcuts by the Mongol Lodai, and should be read by persons interested in Central Asian history during the early twentieth century.
